Safety with Sports

It’s the time of the year when contact sports begin, which makes it a good time to once again bring up the subject of mouth guards.

A penalty is often assessed against high school and college teams when players don’t wear their mouth guards. The biggest consequence of not wearing a guard, however, are not the penalties but the splintered jawbones, cuts to the cheek and lips, and fractured teeth.

Often young athletes find mouth guards awkward and elect not to wear them. We can make one that fits much better and is more comfortable than the generic kind you find in stores.

If you have questions about mouth guards, please give us a call.
